A Dream Kitchen

While on a recent teaching trip, I stayed with a very nice couple who had built their dream home.  I could easily have moved right in with them and I hinted . . well, it was more a threat I suppose . . to move in with them.  They were probably glad when I left because they may have gotten the idea I really would have stayed . . and I really might have! : )

Is that a dream stove?  They both love to cook and designed their kitchen to fit their wants and desires.

This is just a part of the kitchen.  She was loading the dishwasher and if I show the rest of the kitchen, the dishwasher is open and she would probably not be happy and that might jeopardize my chances of moving in with them so I cropped out a good chunk of the kitchen.  The walls are between a grassy green and a lime green.  Such a cheerful room with lots of windows and everything they want . . just the way they want it.

I loved their entire house and the location/setting but I really loved their kitchen!

    That is an amazing stove, I certainly don’t use mine enough to justify anything like that but you certainly do!
    I am looking to repaint my cupboards, redo the floor etc. and I love that neon/neutral green that’s all the rage right now – this colour is pretty close and I love it. I was worried it would overtake the kitchen but…now the gears are grinding!

    That is the “mother of all stoves”…..i enjoy cooking/baking, but that enough to have a stove like that….but I could see you having one like that some day.

    That is definitely a dream stove! I would love to have one like that. We built our dream home and I have a stove with five burners and I thought that would be good but I wish I had done a double oven and a warming drawer. We’ve only been here a little over four years so I don’t think my husband would go for a kitchen re-do quite yet. However…… give me a couple years and I might start campaigning for one. LOL!

    I’ll bet that stove cost more than our house did, including the new kitchen we put in back then. 🙂

    I love that stove, that would be my dream stove along with the water tap for the stock pots. The Bible says that ‘thou shalt not covet’, so can we just drool then?

      I don’t remember reading “Thou shalt not drool” so you’re probably safe and if you’re not . . I’m in big trouble too.

    I used to think I wanted a “pot filler” until my nephew got one and he realized the hard part of a pot of water is carrying it to the sink to pour out the boiling water… didn’t seem like filling the pot at the stove was so necessary to me after that.

    When we turned the Barn into our retirement home, I looked at stoves like that and drooled. But the cost of those stoves meant we would just live in an old barn with a magnificent stove and nothing else so we opted for something much less costly. I did spring for a hardwood floor and lots of counter space. Someday, in my next life maybe, I’ll have a kitchen like that. Good luck on your house hunt!

    OMG She has my dream stove AND something I have always wanted too on the back of that stove; a direct water line right there to fill those huge spaghetti pots or any pot you need to fill with water. I want one of those faucets SO bad behind my stove. Heck, I’d be thrilled with that alone but yea, I would love that kitchen too. LOL

    WOW! That kitchen is to die for! The stove is the cadillac of stoves IMO. I love the green walls, the island, windows…heck, I love it all! I can only imagine what DH would say if I wanted to re-do our kitchen (which we really need to do!). He would say, “You need to cook more”, lol.

    Wow! I’m not a big fan of gas stoves – I’ve never really cooked on one (only a few times), so always end up burning the food… good thing as we don’t have gas at the island home… But I love that island! The direct water line would be wonderful for canning!
